Full STEAM Ahead!
The first graders enjoyed their first Friday STEAM Challenge (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.)
The challenge was to construct the tallest tower out of 30 cups, using all of the materials. They had to go through the design process by generating ideas, drawing a sketch, choosing a solution agreed upon by the whole group, building the tower, making adjustments, and evaluating and measuring the results. The tallest tower was 23.5 inches high! The future engineers enjoyed the challenges they faced and worked cooperatively with one another for successful outcomes.
